During the summer months the question of tick bites and Lyme disease comes up frequently.  On the "Healthy Links" page, there are links to the Healthy Children.org website, and the CDC websites where you can look up the most current approaches to monitoring, diagnosing, and treating tick-borne disease.  On these websites you may also check the latest on safe ingredients in sunscreens and insect repellants.
   
Another link I have posted is the Lactmed website of the National Institutes of Health .  On this website, you can type in the name of any medication and learn whether or not it is compatible with breast feeding.
